Tara Llanes Fund Raiser
I've never met Tara but I've heard her name for years in the bike industry. I was the art director for RockShox and then Giro. I want to give support and help spread the word.
Tara Llanes was badly injured on September 1st, 2007 while racing at the Jeep KOM Finals. At the present time she is paralyzed from the waist down. She has been working intensely at physical therapy and has very high hopes that she will not only walk again, but that she will ride again. Tara raced on the professional mountain bike circuit for 14 years and won a total of 4 National Championships. She made many friends while competing in both the US and the European World Cup Circuit.
Tara Llanes and GO211.com will be hosting an online auction to help raise money to go towards her ever growing medical bills. The auction will feature some of the most sought after items in the sport today. Good luck bidding!
